A party of walkers were rescued on Saturday evening (6 November) after becoming lost on Kinder Scout. 

Soaked and with daylight rapidly fading, they had called police after struggling with boggy conditions and losing sight of the current route of the hill. 

Members of Buxton Mountain Rescue Team went out in the very strong winds and heavy rain to assist. 

The volunteers soon found the missing group sheltering in amongst the rocks and after a quick medical assessment, were given warm dry clothing and escorted off the mountain back to their car.   

The incident was a timely reminder to all hill-goers of the bad weather which can be experienced, especially at this time of year.
